And there's another argument to convince people who don't 'get' why I voluntarily donate blood: I just (most probably) saved a baby's life and it only cost me two hours of my time. How's that for an argument?

Yeah, I don't see how people could be puzzled for why someone would. I mean, I see a lot of reasons for why you wouldn't (travelled to a malaria ridden country, had a previous blood transfusion (maybe me - we're not sure because my mother had to pay for blood in my surgery, but she thinks might have got put back), squeamish of needles, don't have time, etc) but once you get past why you wouldn't, where's the mystery in why you would?

I would donate blood, but I keep traveling out of the country at inconvenient intervals.

This. Only fairly recently was I even old enough to be able to donate blood. I donated once and since then haven't been able to because I've been to places like India and Botswana. I know I won't be able to donate until at least next August. Also, I'm going to Argentina this December, which will probably put me off even longer.

Right, exactly. I was waiting for the end of the two-year period after I went to Beijing, and then my dad packed me off to Taiwan, so I'm waiting for that now. Assuming I even meet the weight requirements. Last time I donated blood was freshman year. (Free cookies!)

I don't even have a clue how the blood donation rules apply to me now. That said, I get so faint when I have blood drawn just for lab testing that even though I would want to donate blood, it'd be a really bad idea.

I joke with people saying I donate blood so the Red Cross will stop hounding my cell phone. They call nearly every night when I'm eligable to donate, and it usually takes me a week before I know when I'll be free on a weekend to donate.

On a side note, even after ~3 years of donating I've still not gotten a donater card. I have no idea where they keep sending them :?

An ex work colleague got a fancy glass plate because he'd donated a total 100 pints (or something like that) over the years.
It was fancy. I was a little jealous.

I've been donating for six years now, but in the beginning they didn't really need me that much, my blood is AB+, so you can only transfuse that into people who have AB+ as well. I only got called 2, maybe 3 times a year out of a possible 5. Then they asked me if I wanted do donate plasma, which takes longer to do, but my plasma can be given to any random blood type, exactly the opposite of blood types. So now I go once every 4 weeks on average. Today was the first time I donated platelets, since they needed some for a AB+ baby on chemotherapy and they asked me if I'd be willing to do that again, and I agreed, so I now donate whatever they need :P I also believe this was my 35th donation total.

And I also honestly believe that being squeamish for needles is something you need to get over, you're helping to save lives for cryin' out loud.

I'm not scared of blood tests or injections, but when you donate the needle is really big.

Plus, I doubt they'd take me. They say they won't take you if you have cold symptoms, and I have cold symptoms about half of all days. I don't know my blood type either.

My main issue at the moment is that since i've moved there are no blood donation places near me. I wouldn't mind but i work in a building that houses a pharmacy, a library, a community dentist, two doctors, outpatients xray type place, is on a pedestrian only walkway, 2 mins walk from a church hall and 3 mins walk from the main shopping precinct. There isn't even one at the uni which is maybe 15 mins walk away. Why isn't there at least one donation drive a month near me?

Also: I had an endoscopy today and they are unpleasant things. Ugh ugh ugh.

I'd love to give blood, but I'm usually either underweight, or on meds, or anemic. Or it's on the college campus and I know that I'll just end up with a hugantic bruise in my elbow (or both) even though my veins aren't hard to find at all.

It's not quite that easy.

I have a rather bad needle phobia. Essentially, unless I'm in so much pain that I don't have energy for being afraid, I tense up so badly that no nurse I've ever encountered are capable of finding my veins. That is, unless I start sobbing and begging them to take the needle away - or in one memorable case, involuntarily hit the doctor (he knew about my phobia and took it well, I honestly didn't know that it could happen).

I think that saying "just get over it, yeez" is slightly unfair.

(And yes, I'm aware that I should probably see a professional about that phobia. I know. But even talking about needles make me shake a bit. I don't really want to)

Are you sure you visited a health-service bloodbank and not the local vampire nest?

I'd love to give blood again. I was 6 donations away from my 25 donation badge when I woke up in hospital after falling down some stairs. Apparently they pushed a complete oil change through me whilst I was out to keep me alive, and now I can't donate because I may be a mad cow, or something.

On a different note, we've got at least two bottles worth of sloes this year. Now, where can I get a good deal on Gordons?
